Weds poetry prompt: ‘An Unsuitable Destination for a Dreamer’


Today’s prompt:  Take the phrase “An Unsuitable (blank) for (blank),” replace the blanks with a word or phrase, make the new the phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem.

An Unsuitable Destination for a Dreamer

A dreamer undoubtedly prefers
The deep solitude of thought
Than sharing solid ground
With loud, outspoken crowds
Who are so helplessly, hopelessly
Awake, their eyes only able to see
In straight lines, to abhorrent obviousness
That dreamers simply cannot bear,
It is a destination quite unsuitable
For life’s wanderers and gliders
Who choose to take stranger roads
And follow the allure of the obscure instead.
